Mattawang Golf Club
Mattawang Golf Club has changed very little since it first opened in 1960. The traditional layout has withstood the test of time as a challenging but playable layout. The course was designed to blend seamlessly into the natural setting while still testing your shot-making skills. You won’t find any man-made water hazards or artificial mounding on this golf course, instead you’ll be challenged by natural streams and ponds and mature evergreens. At first glance, the layout is seemingly wide open, but don’t let your guard down because the fairways are actually quite tight and many of them are strategically lined with trees. In keeping with the time it was built, the greens are smaller than those you would find on most modern golf courses and heavily protected by sand traps. Over the years, Mattawang Golf Club has built a reputation for having some of the well maintained putting surfaces in the area.

Top Dressing Greens with.....?
Have played and enjoyed this course before and did again on 4/10. Although I realize there are certain things that need to be done to keep the course in the good shape that it is, could there be an alternative to the absolutely horrendous smelling "fertilizer" applied to the greens early Saturday morning? Could it have been done on a different day, perhaps mid-week - a non-peak day? The smell of manure was overwhelming and coated the golf balls on every green with every putt. Yes, we're in the midst of a pandemic, but having water in the ball cleaners would've been welcomed.
Sorry to see your disappointment with the fertilizer that was put down last Saturday early am. The longer then normal morning dew caused the issue.
Our normal ball washers have not been out since Covid restrictions were put in place last May. There are a couple older models that are part of signage that should have a bag over them and will now so everyone knows not to use them.
Course was in good shape, tee boxes much improved from last season. Fair but challenging layout, a couple of long par 3’s 190 +.
We are glad you could see the improvements from last season and found the course challenging.
Hope you will be back again soon!
Excellent pace of play today (walked 3 1/2 hrs). The course was in very good condition.
Glad you enjoyed conditions and got to play such a quick round. Thanks
I grew up playing this course as a young player! Had not been on the property in 40 years and this return to my original home course was terrific! The conditions were great as the greens were in great shape. The same routing only changed by the growth of the trees, and my memories! Great value as well.
Will return this season for another walk down memory lane!
Welcome home, glad you enjoyed your visit and we look forward to your return!
Outstanding Course & Value
With my club (Hamilton Farm) opening on 4/15, I was in the area on business, & had a free 1/2 day. When I saw the cost of $38 my expectations weren't much. However, I was very pleasantly surprised!! What a great golf course!! Beautifully maintained tee boxes, fairways, & greens, as well as a very challenging layout. Played it from 6,800+ yards, & this course is all you want. Smallish style greens, but they rolled beautifully, & were very fast!! What an Incredible value - and a well kept secret. Anyone who enjoys golf will absolutely love this course. I highly recommend it!!
Thank you for the well thought out review. We are glad we exceeded your expectations!
We were wondering who that new sweet swinging lefty was? Hope you will be back again soon. Enjoy the season!
Mattawang - mid week
Course was in very good conditions. Pace of play was excellent. Will play again.
Thanks for taking the time to leave a review. Glad you enjoy conditions and a nice pace!
As usual, it was in very good condition. First time that I experienced the course getting a little backed up, but usually it's a 4 hour round.
Thanks for another day at Mattawang Dano. It was a beautiful weekend day.
course is in good condition. but i thought i got hot deal using golfnow that included cart. when i went to the course they denied and charged me extra.
Per our conversation that day. All our tee times over the winter have been booked as 'walking only' with the opportunity to add the cart when you get to the club. This was very clear in your booking. We did not deny you a cart you paid for, we simply charged you for the cart.
excellent golf course..The 30 mph winds wss the only damper to today's outing. The staff are very friendly and we had a great experience...
Thank you very much for the nice review. Glad you enjoyed yourself even with the tough winds!
We look forward to seeing you again soon.
I have played there multiple times, mostly because you can get tee times on short notice. Its an average course, design and conditions typical to a little better than a Muni. Its still early in the year so things are growing in. There are a few interesting holes on the course, and the back 9 is longer and I find harder in design than the front. The greens are on the small side for most holes, and some have some tricky slopes. Decent enough course to play and reasonable for the money. Royce Brook, 5 minutes away, is way better, but also $99 on weekends, so there go, your call.
Thanks Tony, we appreciate your thoughts.
One of the Best Values
I am not sure why this course is not fully overbooked. Third time playing this year, as expected conditions getting better and better each time. Staff is friendly and accommodating,. Pace of play started slow yesterday, but ranger/starter was right on it. Got the groups to move and played in a little over 4 hours with our whole group walking. The greens are a tad furry and on slow side. However that is most likely due to time of the season and weather. The WHITE tees are a good challenge. There is enough distance and challenge. Its too bad this so far from our homes, they would have a dozen more golfing members if closer.
Donald, we really appreciate you playing Mattawang three times already.
The greens did begin to get some growth on Friday but they will be cutting again daily now. Hope you will be back to play us all season! Enjoy
Simple layout, small greens make it the challenge though. Not going to really pressure your game tee to green but definitely some tee shots you have to play smart. Greens were slow this time of year but rolled nicely.
Thank you for making the trip from Brooklyn this past weekend. Glad you enjoyed the challenge of Mattawang.
If these small greens do not put pressure on your iron game you must be an excellent iron player! Enjoy the regular season!
Thank you for playing Mattawang and leaving a review. You will really enjoy conditions soon when more work can get completed. Enjoy the season.
